Good day friends! Wow, what a weekend!!  We were busy indeed with two more graduation parties to attend, a Father’s Day celebration in-between, and a youth event for about 30 teenagers in our backyard last night. Our calendar is full for June and July, but August looks like the month we will rest and just go with the flow. Have you been busy this month at gatherings with friends and family, also?

In the meantime, my son woke up to a persistent cough, which thankfully is due to allergies and nothing more serious. It is his last week of school and I am praying he feels up to going back tomorrow so he can take his final tests, and not only finish the year strong, but enjoy these last few days with his friends before summer break.

Here is a quick recipe for baked or grilled salmon that is super easy and tasty, too. If you choose to grill the fillets first, try adding the glaze after they have been cooked to avoid burning the fish and losing the mustard-dill sauce on the hot grates.

Roasted Salmon With Mustard-Dill Glaze

4 – 4 oz center-cut salmon fillets
mayonnaise
grainy mustard
chopped dill
dark brown sugar
lemon juice
black pepper
salt
garlic powder
onion powder

Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a small dish, combine 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon each grainy mustard and chopped dill. 1-1/2 teaspoons dark brown sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and a pinch of black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. Put four 4-ounce, center-cut salmon fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper and spread mayonnaise mixture over top of fillets. Roast until just cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
